Community Tasting Notes 4

    November 26, 2019 - Glass at a party last night. PnP, and the wine could probably have used some time to breathe. Powerful nose of sweet blackberries and cherries. Similar on the palate with some vanilla and oak. Dark, full-bodied, thick legs. Good persistence, long legs, moderate tannins, any acidity is totally integrated. Rich and delicious with no heat, but Riesling Fan hits the nail on the head in noting the lack of acidity doesn't give this wine the structure the price point merits. It's a matter of personal preference, but at wine searcher's listed price, I'd prefer a Chambertin (or even 2!). From my perspective, don't even think about pairing this with fish. Although this is big, lack of acidity makes me think that this won't be a long term ager.

    January 3, 2018 - Bright, big with lots of fruit but not overly done. The alcohol is not noticeable and there is good zip. One of the best KB pinots I have tasted. (93)

    December 21, 2017 - Not sure what I was expecting when my dad offered to open this, but it was something this well-mannered. While it was certainly a Pinot on the bigger side, it was not jammy or hot. The fruit ran towards blackberry and black cherry. There was a spice and vanilla component, but it was not overwhelming. Overall I found it quite drinkable, though I wished for a bit of tannic structure. It had good acidity, but I wanted a bit more backbone. Certainly not the Kosta Browne I remembered from the old days, this was ripe but very drinkable.
